Architectural Idea Competition

space for....


space for….

This competition seeks innovative ideas in designing a space focusing on the relationships between a project and a ‘character’ and the site. Each participant or team of participants will propose a character for designing a house. This ‘character’ can be a person or group of persons of interest and inspiration for the project. There are no limitations as to the choice of the character. This character may be a historical or contemporary, real or fictional person, a significant group, from any origin or nationality. It is vital that within the submitted proposal, the character is introduced, and the project’s relationship with him/her or them is justified. ArchTwist invites participants to explore the boundaries and paradigms of designing houses with ground-breaking and visionary proposals.

This idea competition does not specify any particular site or setting. Therefore, each contestant or team can choose the location of their project based on the specific character. Participants can design a new space in an empty plot or propose a reuse of an existing building or structure. Nevertheless, participants will have to justify their choice of location for the project. A good architectonic conceptualization and original ideas will receive the highest consideration. ArchTwist encourages contestants to experiment and to formally and spatially explore new solutions. From the architectonic point of view, we expect an original, out-of-the-box, creative, contemporary, and risky proposition.


The judging will be based but not limited to:

  • Innovation and creativity
  • Spatial and architectural interest of the proposal.
  • Conceptual and identity connection between the character and the proposed project.
  • New exploration, alternative input that breaks with preconceived schemes in the traditional design process.
